Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Vol. 1 Support Feature Confirmed

A few PC players are now complaining.

A new report has finally confirmed a certain support feature for the PC version of Konami’s Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Vol. 1.

Konami officially announced the Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Vol. 1 just recently and it made fans quite happy after a long silence from the company. It was announced together with the main event, Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater, a remake of the original MGS3.

Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Vol. 1 Support Finally Confirmed

The collection was going to be available on many platforms including PC, but this made fans raise a question related to PC support. They wanted to know if the PC version will support mouse and keyboard hardware since these games have only been playable on consoles in the past. This new update on Steam will finally make things clear and it does not look good for the fans.

The Steam page of the video game collection confirms that it will NOT SUPPORT mouse and keyboard, unfortunately. Earlier in June 2023, the original trilogy of games was listed but got taken down, but fans noticed that there was a lack of mouse and keyboard support. Later, the listing is back up again with the same message.

“Metal Gear Solid Master Collection version requires a controller in order to play,” says the Steam page. “Playing with a keyboard and mouse isn’t supported.”

Most Not Bothered, Few Will

While most PC players will not be bothered by this inconvenience, a few others will be. It seems Konami did not bother to develop support software to make the games playable with a mouse and keyboard. Some of them have posted their complaints online about the lack of support. One of them even threatened to not pre-order the game if they will not implement it.

Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Vol. 1 will launch on October 24, 2023 on PC, PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch.
